Ask SARK August 2013


Ask SARK is a place where you can bring me your puzzles, fears, celebrations, wonderings, or anything you feel guided to Ask SARK. Random and serendipitous is good! Curious or contemplative is welcome.

My Inner Wise Self and I will intuitively respond. Who knows what will happen??

Below you’ll find the first set of juicy questions I received from brilliant human beans and my succulent responses.

If you have something you’d like to Ask SARK send it here:


SARK (aka Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy)


Q:  I would like to ask for suggested personal reflections or explorations when someone has the experience of a beloved one with a short time to live.  – Lynda


SARKDearest Lynda,

When my mom was dying, I read a book called Stay Close and Do Nothing that helped me a great deal, because at that time, I felt helpless and sure that my not bring able to do anything was where my suffering was. I now know that my resistance was my suffering. I then began reading and reflecting on a book called Grace in Dying, and I began to experience the grace.

Thank you for asking this beautifull, poignant question and if it is your beloved that has a short time to live, I send you grace and allowing, and a strong connection to what I call your Inner Wise Self.

You can dialogue with this aspect of yourself and receive even more specific guidance and support. Just ask and write down what your Inner Wise Self says.


Q: The world is changing, do you feel we’ll see a completely NEW world in our lifetimes or is it still going to take longer? Is the momentum shifting fast enough to see the results in our lives? – Emily


SARKDear Emily,

I believe that we are already seeing a completely new world every moment that we choose.

The momentum is even swifter now as more people wake up to their divinity and creativity. I’m so excited to see what MORE we will create. What results would you like to see?



Q: What is the one (or one of the many) practices you do each day that feeds you, grounds you, makes you happy?  -Madonna


SARKDear Madonna,

The practices that most ground me are what I call the three I’s.

I created these to live a more self loving and creative life.

*Inner Wise Self, Activated and Empowered

*Inner Feelings Care System

*Inner Critic Care System

Practicing these 3 leads to my feeling fed and happy most of the time. And when I feel myself less than happy, I do these transformative practices to fill myself back up.

I also believe in living in what I call the “marvelous messy middle” with all of my feelings.  What are your favorite practices?


Q:  If you could be a vehicle – any possible type of vehicle – what would you be and why?  – David L.


SARKDear David,

Thanks for asking! I am a vehicle of love. This vehicle is shaped like a paintbrush and moves like quicksilver through the world. The fuel is self love and the maintenance is my transformative practices. The speed is the speed of love and there is no limit.

What kind of vehicle are you?



Q:  If you could pick one thing that moved you out of poverty or one moment that was the pivotable point when you knew you were moving out of poverty what you say it is?  -Beth H., Artist


SARKDear Beth,

What moved me out of poverty was my Inner Wise Self in action and creativity. Once I committed to listening to what my Inner Wise Self was advising and taking action, my creativity grew exponentially to meet it. I then allowed myself to create money as I had created art or words. I also explored what energy poverty held for me and why I felt the need to be poor. There are many gifts in poverty, and one of them is as an impetus to something different.

At times, poverty felt like I didn’t have “enough.” I started experimenting with what did feel like enough and experienced feeling like I had enough without feeling like I was in poverty during the decade I lived outside of the money system, on barter and trade. I realized that I always felt wealthy in creativity, inner Wise Self and self-love. Allowing poverty can be a great training ground for allowing more wealth if transformational practices are applied to it.

Dear Sparkling Soul (in the absolute midst of everything that goes on in your life,)

I’ve created a NEW way to connect with you! It’s called Ask SARK. It costs no money, and it delivers infinite inner resources.

When SARK came into being 30 years ago, I was living outside the money system, mostly on barter, trade & miracles.

What I now describe as my Inner Wise Self guided me every skip, jump, hop, and crawl of the way.

With the help of this powerfull inner mentor, I’ve been able to transform the negative effects of incest, poverty, depression, anxiety, overwhelm, overwork and fear. I continue to transform.

With the profound help of my Inner Wise Self, I’ve created the life of my dreams- living my purpose- to be a transformer, an uplifter and laser beam of love. I do this through my art, words and spirit. I live in what I call the “marvelous messy middle” with ALL of my feelings. I still experience all the challenging feelings and experiences, I just don’t spend as much time there.

I created 3 transformative principles and practice these consistently every day and share them with others who also enjoy transforming their lives and feeling glad more often. Note that this can lead to feeling glad no matter what!

These 3 principles are:

1. Inner Wise Self activated and empowered: most people know they have an Inner Wise Self, most people aren’t consistently asking for and receiving all the miracles it can provide.

2. Inner feelings care system: most people are aware of their feelings, most people aren’t consistently expressing them in ways that reduce fear and expand self love.

3. Inner critic care system: most people know that they are hard on themselves, most people don’t know that their critical inner dialogue can be transformed with the help of their Inner Wise Selves.

I’m inspired to share these principles with more people. The more we all transform, the more miracles will occur.

So here’s my idea: Ask SARK is a place where you can bring me your puzzles, fears, celebrations, wonderings, or anything you feel guided to Ask SARK. Random and serendipitous is good! Curious or contemplative is welcome

My Inner Wise Self and I will intuitively respond. Who knows what will happen??


Here are some sample questions and my answers;

1 – What pens or markers do you use?

The most succulent, juicy boadacious ones I can find! I enjoy brands like Tombow, and Crayola. I love to experiment with new pens in art and stationery stores. My purple pens are Pentel Sign pens, and they come in different colors and last forever. I love pens when they’re all together in SETS. I feel like the pens are all collaborating about what they want to create together;-)


2 – What is a Succulent Wild Woman?

A woman of any age who feels free to fully express herself in every dimension of her life. A succulent is a plant that nourishes itself from the inside, using resources from the outside. We can live like full cups of succulent self-love, sharing the overflow with the world. And when we don’t feel that way, we can do our transformational practices to fill ourselves back up from the inside like the succulents do. We can be succulent wild creatures of life and love. And this all goes for Succulent Wild Men too!


3 – What do you recommend doing to awaken creativity when someone isn’t feeling creative?

Realize that you’re already creative even if you don’t FEEL creative. Creativity is in EVERYthing. We can apply our creative thinking and actions to every area of our lives- anything broken, lost or missing- it ALL benefits from our creativity. Access your Inner Wise Self- that part of you inside that is bigger and wiser than your personality self- to help you expand your creativity. ASK this part of you what would feel creative and juicy right now. Sometimes it’s a nap;-) Sometimes it’s leaving notes on trees or inventing a sauce for pasta or a new way to play with a child…..


4 – What book are you reading right now?

The book of love;-) I’m in love with myself, life and my beloved partner John. I’m also reading 3 other books simultaneously; Orbiting the Giant Hairball by Gordon Mackenzie, Mind Over Medicine by Dr. Lissa Rankin and a bulging novel called Wicked Pleasures. I love books and how words move and connect us.I enjoy starting and not finishing books. I revel in diving so deeply into a book that I can’t remember if I’m in this world or not. I adore writing and creating books and allowing them to be created through me and my Inner Wise Self.


5 – I’ve heard you reference taking a miracle walk. What is a miracle walk?

It’s where you walk out of your house, or wherever you are and say “Miracle, find me now.” Then, you wait for the miracle to appear and tune your vision to be able to see and recognize it. It might appear in the form of a flat tire, a crying child, a rainbow, or a gift of money or new work. Then you can add to this and say; “Miraculous person find me now.” Then look for that person or people to appear. Share your experiences and stories of these miracles and miraculous people- you will benefit and so will others. Miracles will multiply!


Each month, my inspired team & I will soulfully choose 5 questions for me to respond to. We’ll see how it feels and how many questions you feel like asking and see where we go from there.

You can send your questions now to:

Thank you for being present for your life and for playing with me.

SARK (aka Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy)

p.s. there are no “perfect questions” so send your inner perfectionist off on a new assignment & just ask me what your heart wishes
